A blend of Brazilian and Ethiopian beans, to come out tasting creamy and sweet, for an espresso that can be enjoyed on its own but also pairs beautifully with milk.

"This roast was very light, while I prefer a darker full flavored roast. I brewed this one n my automatic espresso machine. If you prefer a light roast for your espresso then this might be the roast for you. " (2 out of 5)

"This espresso was very different than I expected. I wash;t sure how I would feel about the strawberry flavor, but I actually liked it more than I thought. Having said that, I do prefer stronger darker blends more!" (3 out of 5)

"Automatic espresso machine. This roast was better with milk even though it was a light roast. Without milk...not so much. " (3 out of 5)

"I really enjoy this one, it's different with the undertones. I picked up on the fruity taste - maybe blueberry right away. I made it a triple shot latte to make it strong enough. Definitely worth it. Worth trying at least once! " (4 out of 5)

"Very light. It did have a fruity flavor, and it was sharp. Not what I was expecting as an espresso. " (2 out of 5)

"To much fruity flavor for my taste. If you like fruity, or floral espressos, you might like this one. " (3 out of 5)

"This was a good espresso, but I found that it was so light that the steamed milk I added for lattes almost entirely covered up any noticeable tasting notes that should have shown up. It's probably better for those who drink it with less or no milk, but it didn't stand out in a latte." (3 out of 5)
